  College Planning Checklist


For each step, call or contact the campus you are interested in attending.

  • Schedule a campus visit and tour: Call the Admissions Office for an appointment. You can also meet with our Financial Aid staff during your campus visit.

  • Application for admission: Complete and return our application. Applications are available on our Web site, from our admissions offices (listed below) or from high school counselors. (Some programs have special admission requirements and deadlines. Check with the Admissions Office.)

  • Transcripts: Have your final high school transcript and any previous college transcripts sent to the Records Office. If you have received a degree from another institution, official transcripts on file at CCC are necessary to register for most classes at CCC.

  • Schedule an assessment test: if you anticipate earning a certificate, diploma or degree or intend to enroll in an academic transfer course, please call us to schedule a time to take the ASSET/COMPASS pre-enrollment assessment. Completing a pre-enrollment assessment is required to register for classes. Scores must be current from the last three years. A college degree may allow for an exception. Some CCC health programs and transfer courses require current pre-enrollment assessment scores even if you have a degree. Contact the Admissions Office or the Assessment Office with questions.

  • ACT Test: Have your ACT scores sent to the Admissions Office if taken within the last three years. (The ASSEST/COMPASS may be waived if you have an ACT composite of 19 or higher and all subscores of 19 or above.)

  • Scholarships: Request a scholarship application from CCC Financial Aid. High school students may obtain an application from their guidance counselor. Check for scholarship deadlines.

  • Financial Aid: If you are interested in financial aid, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) after Jan. 1. You can apply online at or request the form from CCC Financial Aid.

  • Housing: Indicate your interest in on-campus housing on your application for admission.

  • Orientation and registration: Attend New Student Orientation and registration prior to your first semester at Central Community College. You will receive an invitation to these sessions. You also may phone the Admissions Office to preregister.
